Make sure the front of the prop faces forward and switch any two of the three motor wires to reverse direction of rotation....Jim

Changing the way the prop is mounted on the shaft does not change the direction of its airflow. If mounted backwards, the airflow will still be in the same direction. It will just be weaker.

Mount the prop so that the lettering on the prop faces forward, toward the front of the plane. Then, as Jim says, swap any two of the motor wires to get the prop turning in the right direction.
